In jail

In jail

Rotting soul

Sinned society

Achieved your goal

Years go by

Serving time 

Have you regrets?

For your crime?

What did you do?

Are you proud?

Do you crave it?

To shout it aloud

Did you hurt someone?

Someone you love?

Are you missed?

Now that you’re judged

My new book “Rhyming poetry to change your day” is now available in paperback

Ghost town

Ghost town

Where are they?

Are the kids

Coming out to play?

All built up

Deserted now

All that’s left

Is to bring the plough

Politics gone mad

Shops, businesses gone

Wealth dried up

Everything is wrong

Looking for someone to write about

Hi all, looking for inspiration again. I would like to write about someone, someone who has suffered. I would like to write several poems on homelessness, addiction, refugees, losing somebody, dying. If you would consider sharing your story with me I would be honored to write a poem using your words and experiences.

Fight to survive

.

The stench of them, escapees, days it’s been

In the boat, it’s horrific scenes

Piss, sweat, blood and tears

Silence wearily breeding fear

Little water, no food left

Weak pushed overboard, laid to rest

They’ve paid their money to board the boat

It’s a wonder it has stayed afloat

Coming up to land, they see it there

They start to overcome their despair

Out of the boat someone cries

Pushed into the water by the other guys

Winded, swallowing water now

Your submerged, pushed down, and how

You try to fight with others around you

All of you battling to breath too

You hear shouting, just muffled sounds

You feel other people’s bodies all around

You come to the surface and catch your breath

It seems like you have passed the test

You look around in the water near you

Drowned bodies in a sea of death stew

This is the freedom you have seeked

Only for the strong, not the weak

You swim for the shore, as hard as you can

What will you do? What will be your plan?

It’s still so far, so far away

Will you reach it? Get there today?

You push and push, more and more

You start to touch the sea floor

Exhausted, emotional, you reach the land

You feel the ground, the wet sand

You start to cry, your an emotional mess

To survive all that, you must have been blessed

It’s coming

Madness, two leaders doing deranged things

We don’t yet know what it’s going to bring

A country that feels they have to protect themselves

By testing missiles and whatever else

The world is in outrage at their outrageous acts

They refuse to change, they continue in fact

Not even a president of the United states

Who speaks like a dictator and raises the stakes

Kim calls trump mentally deranged

Sorry guys, what you are doing, your both insane!

Madman! rocketman! Let the insults fly

Like the US jets doing their fly by

Now trump is a dotard, according to Kim

Old, mental capacity ready for the bin

Trump fires losers that don’t get results

Kim just shoots them, doesn’t accept insults

Where are we going, what is next for the world

World war three perhaps, only time will tell.

Positive thinking

.

Are you feeling down, world against you?

Pickled in turmoil in boggy stew

Life throws us curved balls, cogs in wheels

Hide if you will or dare to dig in your heels

What doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger

Use your mind, be creative, think a little bit longer

I may not be the best, you may be better than me

Hey hum, that’s life, your free to be free

Stuck in your job, no way to get out

Yes you can, they can do without

I am just a human in this immense universe

If you don’t fulfill your potential it’s even worse

You are great, you can lead

Others will listen and take heed

Change the world in a day may not be possible

But with positive thinking you are free and able.
